Sugar Cookies Recipe

Prep: 30 mts, Chilling time: 1 hr, Baking: 10 mts

.

Ingredients:

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour/maida

1/2 tsp baking pwd

1 tsp vanilla essence

1 egg

1/2 cup butter, room temp

3/4 cup sugar

pinch of salt

1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a baking tray with parchment paper/foil.
2 Sift salt, flour and baking pwd and keep aside. Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy, approx 3 mts. Add vanilla and egg and combine well. Add the flour mixture, mix until well combined. Refrigerate dough covered with a plastic wrap for an hour until firm enough to roll.
3 Remove half of the chilled dough from the refrigerator and on a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to a thickness of 1/4 “. Keep turning the dough as you roll. Cut out desired shapes using a lightly floured cookie cutter and transfer cookies to the baking tray.
4 Place the baking tray with the unbaked cookies in the refrigerator for 10-15 mts to chill. This prevents the cookies from spreading and losing shape while baking. Sprinkle sugar just before putting into the oven to bake. Or frost with royal icing.
5 Bake for about 10 mts till the edges are slightly toasted or till done.
6 Cool on a wire rack. The cookies will harden. Repeat with remaining dough.
7 Cool completely. Store in airtight container.

  4. Can we make this without Oven? actually i have an oven but it doesn’t have the pre heat option…

  5. You can place knob at bake option for 10 mts and that will pre-heat the oven, Swathi. Usually ovens do not have a pre-heat option.
